A Frame Apart
About This Show
It’s Critic vs Screenwriter. Sometimes … maybe … kinda?
Welcome to A Frame Apart, the movie podcast from divergent perspectives under one roof. We’re your hosts, Ariel Fisher and Bob Barrow. Ariel’s a film critic and freelance journalist, and Bob’s a screenwriter. Each episode, we’ll take a look at two movies that have some sort of connection. Sometimes that connection will be obvious, and others not so much. On A Frame Apart, we aim to provide a variety of perspectives on cinema, not only from the standpoint of professionals on different sides of the camera, but as fans of media, pop culture enthusiasts, and lovers of cinema. We will speak passionately about subjects near and dear to us through film, and expound upon larger issues that permeate our cinematic culture and how we consume media. From horror to comedy, and everything in between, every great film is just a frame apart.

Episode 46 - The Fly VS Funny Games
< 1 day ago
June is almost through, which means we're nearly done with our look at divergent films! This week it's all about remakes with a look at one of the greatest horror remakes of all time, and a frame-for-frame remake of a controversial film 10 years after its initial release: it's David Cronenberg's grotesque body horror landmark, The Fly, versus Michael Haneke's postmodern revisitation of his own work, Funny Games. We tackle both films and their predecessors, while discussing what makes these reproductions so successful, and so vastly different from one another. Tune in to find out what Ariel and Bob's favourite, and most disappointing remakes are, as well as some surprising gems they've discovered over the years.
